The Senate tax Bill approved is a disaster that will add some $l.4 trillion to our deficit. The majority of Americans oppose these tax cuts. The Republicans, however, ignore the will of the people and instead enhance their own wealth and reward their donors. These donors will in turn provide the dark money to help Republicans win elections.
The bill shifts massive wealth from the middle class to the wealthy and we are left with the crumbs. The rich and powerful are taking over our country. This is not Democracy. Our only recourse is to make sure we vote for the Democrats who will restore fairness and democracy to our nation. Thank you Sens. Flake and McCain for betraying us by voting for this tax cut for the rich-rich.
